    I was fortunate to meet AC at the pulmonary rehab session. I really enjoyed his dry wit. He was so much fun to talk with. I'm so sorry for your loss. Liz Ross

    Terry and Allen: Sorry to hear of the passing of of Allen's Dad. I recall AC's attendance at Maggie's volleyball tournaments, and was sure he was proud of his granddaughter. My condolences. Keith
